Ah, but drag has a point in this case. The potential for abuse and corruption in a function such as total information awareness is too high for any government to have, so it should be forbidden by law. Probably by an amendment to the constitution of all democratic countries.
Not so with public healthcare or other functions, which may or may not be provided by the government, but there are no a priori arguments against the function itself. (Sure, US right-wingers have a plethora of such arguments. They just don't make any sense.)
